“Lisa, creator of Paradise Hand Pies (now Paradise Creative Cuisine), made us the most delicious curry pork hand pies. The even crust was the perfect balance of flaky and chewy. They were filled to the brim with a comforting, flavorful pork curry. Ordering and meet up was a breeze.”

“Lisa was an amazing chef all weekend. Each meal had its own unique twist. It is hard to decide, but I would say my favorite dish was the soup dumplings! They were layered in flavors and simply delicious.”

-Haley, Albuquerque, NM

“Lisa! What a class! The recipes we walked through are favorites of my entire family now, and the new techniques you showed me are getting tons of use. I’m still trying to run through all the recipe ideas you gave me. I feel like my whole kitchen game was elevated! Thank you Thank you”

“Lisa is one of the most creative chefs I’ve encountered. What I enjoy most about her creations are not only that they are delicious, they are presented in such visually appealing ways… she really is an artist. Whether I’m noshing her herbed flaky crust quiche, a savory had pie, duck egg ramen, or ultimate comfort food chicken stew, the flavor combinations and the unique twists on old classics are simply to die for. I also appreciate her use of wild game in my old favorites. Do your palate a favor and try her creations!”

“Lisa provided a fantastice experience for our family; as a family of 5 with very particular needs (including two pretty adventurous eaters, a pescatarian, and a vegetarian), I was apprehensive to bring in a private chef that could meet our needs. Our fears were alleviated and Lisa provided a carefully curated meal that satisfied each family member. We enjoyed her conversations during meal prep and while cooking. Each course was better than the last, and we were very impressed at how she was able to prepare meals that we enjoyed while introducing us to fresh Hawaiian ingredients. We would absolutely book Lisa’s services next time we travel to Hawaii.”
